Just a quick update on our little girl. This morning we picked up Jenelle's new "crash helmet" from the orthopedic vendor. We had a choice of pink, blue or tan and we went with pink. It is a real nice helmet; it is lightweight, soft and looks like a hockey helmet. I'll try to send photos when I get around to taking some. Jenelle will need to wear this helmet when rolling around on the floor and if she starts walking in case she has a drop seizure. She did not look very happy with it on, so we'll she how she adjusts to wearing it.
And speaking of mobility… Jenelle is finally crawling! When I dropped her off at school this morning after we got the helmet, I had a chance to chat with her teacher about her progress. I told her teacher I thought she was close to crawling and her teacher said, "She's crawling for us!" Of course, she is not very quick or very coordinated, and her "crawling" does not look like a typical baby crawling, but she is definitely on the move. Some call it "combat crawling" and she looks a lot like a soldier sneaking up on their enemy. Also she seems so happy with her new "view" of the world. Each day she is stronger at sitting up, and now with her mobility she is discovering new things and learning how to find us in other parts of the house. For example, last night I left her on the floor in the living room while drawing her bath, and by the time I returned to get her for her bath, she was almost halfway down the hall towards the bathroom. Its so wonderful to have her improving so much! I never thought we'd see this type of mobility with our little girl!
Thank you for the continued prayers and positive thoughts! I'll keep you posted!
